• This is what the finished ghosts will 
look like. 

Step 2 

You will need some soft white yarn 
and white chenille stems. These 
are inexpensive and you can find 
them in any craft store.

• Cut 20 strands of yarn and lay 
them across a chenille stem as 
shown. Wrap the chenille stem 
around the yarn and then twist it 

Step 4 

Fluff the yarn into the shape of a 
ghost. A hairbrush can help with 
this. Bend the ends of the chenille 
stem up to make the ghost's arms

• Coat your flower pot with glue and sprinkle glitter on it so that it is completely covered. 
Allow it to dry. 

• Center a length of wood dowel in the flower pot and fill the space around it with small 
pebbles to hold it in place. It is best to glue the pebbles in place to keep the dowel from 

• Paint the dowel and the pebbles with black acrylic paint and allow it to dry. 

• Make a sign out of cardboard and glue it to a toothpick. 

• Twist the ghost's arm around the toothpick to hold the sign. To make the ghost's eyes and 
mouth, cut the shapes out of glitter paper. When cutting the mouth, you can use 
scrapbooking scissors that cut wavy edges as shown. 

• Make some more ghosts!

• Here, I decided to vary the 
decorations; I added ribbon along 
the edge of the flower pots, and 
paper pumpkins.
